The mosque and the Marginalized Constitution: It's just a symbol now.

One simple truth about the opposition to the NY mosque:

The Constitution will only symbolize the intent of the founding fathers, leaving public opinion the final arbiter of whether our rights are protected, based on what is offensive or acceptable.

The conservatives have marginalized the Constitution, an amazing feat and the final stake through the heart of our grand experiment. If you can't count on the simplest meaning derived from the constitutional language, but defer instead to opinion polls about what is considered right or feels good, then there is no hope.
